A garden is...

Our garden in early spring.
Temperatures are still in the 40's and 50's,
but the pansies growing in the birdbath manage
to survive...

The grass, after the second mowing of the season,
is beautiful and green, even though
the butterfly bush is not yet ready
to bloom...

A beautiful garden is so much more than flowers.
It needs some structure, along with a
chippy-paint old chair...

...and some bird ornamentation.

It may still be cold outside, but that shouldn't
keep us from dreaming of the beautiful days
to come!

I hope that today you are walking in the garden of your dreams.
As always, many thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh you are SO much further ahead than we are...I see some shoots from my daffodils but that's all...and there is still a bit of snow and ice on the driveway...warmer temps will take care of that. But I heard some mourning doves today and that tells me that spring can't be far away!

    1. We are actually at least one month behind weather-wise. The bad part about it here is that there will be no real spring, and practically over night it will become intensely hot. Have a great Easter Sherry. XO
